On January 19, 1853 Anna Melissa Hicks married John Alexander Bain in Fannin county, Texas, where his parents lived near Honey Grove. John Bain was born on March 15, 1823 in Robeson County, North Carolina, the second son of William C. and Catherine McKennon Bain. In 1846 the recently widowed Catherine Bain, her four sons, two daughters and 22 slaves moved to Texas. There they settled on land she had purchased on the North Fork of the Sulphur River at Honey Grove, Fannin County. Two years later Catherine Bain deeded this land to her sons Hugh, John and Kenneth. After John married Anna Melissa Hicks they settled on newly opened farm land near Indian Creek, in eastern Collin County. The tax records of the period list him as a cattleman.
